32o HISTORY OF PERSIA CHAP, force, and Turkish anxiety was never aroused by Persian policy, which at most aspired to regain Baghdad or Erivan and attempted nothing more than raids to ^the west of these strongholds. Beyond the eastern frontiers of Iran, Samarcand to the north and Delhi to the south were equally safe from any danger of a Persian invasion. The Safavis cannot therefore take rank with the Achaemenian or Sasanian dynasties, which created world empires ; for they played a secondary r61e on the stage of history and were content if they maintained the ancient limits of Persia. Nevertheless, the prestige of the dynasty is very high among Persians owing to its national and religious character, and perhaps also to the recognition of its brilliance by European writers.
